A Victorian local and was surprised to find she’s stumbled upon a bizarre-looking creature while walking along a beach in the state’s south-east.

A cosy Seaside Escape, posted a photo of the strange-looking sea creatures on Facebook, after it was sunbake” on a Golden Beach in the state’s Gippsland region over the weekend.

The odd-looking animal is actually a catshark.

This is the kind of shark that tends to be at the bottom of the ocean and eat small fish, although some species are capable of living in extremely shallow water for a long period of time.

In spite of their frightening appearance, catsharks, are not harmful to human health.

A lot of users of social media were pleasantly surprised by the “amazing” shark in the vicinity.

“That’s really the nature at its best,” one person said.

Added: “the fact That it is really, really cool.”

However, some social media users were not impressed at all.

“Aw, hell no,” one man said.

Another wrote: “I’m not sure whether or not this is a good thing. anyone else spotted any other of these ended up in just a couple of weeks ago. What is happening in the deep sea, they coming up?”

Some types of shark and also a glow-in-the-dark, which will be used in order to communicate with one another.

The research, published in the nature journal Scientific Reports, by 2016, there are two types of shark, chain catshark, and the swell shark, the blue light from the ocean and re-emitted at lower energy wavelengths that result in the fish to glow bright green.

Lead author of the study, Dr. David Gruber, said he was aware of this, the process is called biofluorescence, it is coral, but I was not aware of that can be found in “beyond the sea” as well.

“It’s kind of a sci-fi novel,” he said.

“In 2014, we were studying biofluorescence in corals, and we accidentally got photobombed by a green fluorescent eel, so we went on an expedition and found 180 species of biofluorescent fish.

Dr. Hans and his team have discovered, catsharks, and swell sharks, and lived for about 500 meters below the surface of the water, where the sunlight and produce a blue light.

An unidentified pigment in the shark-skin and re-send to the animal is so clear and green.
